A wildlife rescue centre in Wiltshire has been saved from closure after the public raised £50,000 in three months.

Oak and Furrows near Cricklade says it's the busiest it's ever been, with particularly high numbers of hedgehogs.

One benefactor donated £10,000 anonymously.

As the Wildlife Centre appeal to raise £50,000 has drawn to a close, we have the absolute delight of confirming that through the kindness and support of our local community and beyond, we have successfully raised the funds needed to keep the centre operating into 2018. We could not have achieved this feat without the unfaltering generosity of our supporters.
